This square served as the departure point for Jews bound for the Treblinka death camp. Between 5000-7000 persons were sent away from this site daily; this monument was raised in 1988 to commemorate these sad events. On the wall, 448 names from Abel to Żanna are etched as a symbol for 450,000 Jews imprisoned in the ghetto as well as the inscription: ‘Over 300,000 Jews passed down this road of suffering and death from the Warsaw ghetto between 1942 to 1943’.  An inscription from the Book of Hiob on an adjacent wall reads: ‘Oh Earth, do not hide my blood so that my cry will go unheard’.
